For topping up Derek? Mine hasn't used a drop in 4500miles, it isn't an Audi

Tyre pressure label on drivers door shut. 2.6-2.8 bar on mine I think. I use 2.6.

But if you fancy changing oil yourself

I wouldn't buy that Halfords synthetic........it is crap.

BMW probably use Castrol Edge as they have a Castrol sticker somewhere IIRC

This is the stuff! BMW gave me a litre of it when I received my E90 LCI 330d. Specifically made for the engine. Mine was the most potent they put in the E90; the 245ps/520NM N57, so I'm pretty sure it'll go in your 258ps/560NM 30d's too!
